It states that understanding biomechanics can help development efficient movement patterns in sports, improve sport-specific technique, and develop proper habits. This article gives the example of pitching, and learning the correct movements leads to whether a person is "minor" or "major" league material. I chose to upload this article because we did not have class this week, but this article gives a general overview of why we study biomechanics and how it can apply to our lives. 10-25-2016 11:11am
